For all the talk about diversity at Wake County school board meetings, it is hard to ignore the lack of diversity among diversity supporters. The adjacent picture from Wednesday’s News & Observer report on the Wake County school board meeting, makes the point. Lots of clapping and chanting from demonstrators – all of which seem to be white. The News & Observer has a gallery of over 20 photos from Tuesday’s meeting. A quick review shows the absence of minorities. The same point could be made at any school board meeting over the last six months. It certainly makes you wonder. If minorities were opposed to the school board’s decision to drop socioeconomic status as a criteria for school assignment, wouldn’t it be noticeable at school board meetings?
